Explore Edinburgh

As an award-winning visitor destination, Edinburgh is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe - it's no wonder we wanted to host the BSAS 2019 75th anniversary conference in our home town!

Immerse yourself in the city's medieval history as you amble along the cobbled streets of the Old Town's famous Royal Mile, the magnificent Castle dominating the skyline or take in the Georgian splendour of the New Town.

This Tale of Two Towns is modern and cosmopolitan yet steeped in history and culture. Millions of visitors are drawn to the city all year round for a host of social and scientific events.

Not only does Edinburgh double as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it has a huge amount of attractions.  So why not extend your stay, take in the sites and enjoy our vibrant city. 


From Dolly the Sheep to pandas, world-class art and inspirational museums to tales of ghosts and ghastly goings on in the hidden streets that lie beneath the Royal Mile. There are so many things to see and do during your stay in Edinburgh, the hard part will be fitting it all in! Top Attractions
